Thousands of festival goers have flocked to Port Macquarie for the 14th annual Festival of the Sun, and on day one the crowds are roaring for some great Australian music.

Coming from all over the country festival goers are well and truly in the mood to party and the stage it set for some great acts over the weekend.

FOTSUN festival director Simon Luke said the festival will be pumping all weekend long.

“We’re really proud of the fact the FOTSUN experience is so unique that we attract lots of artists and industry who simply attend to hang out and catch up, including many past performers, who are always welcome,” Mr Luke said.

Over the weekend we also want to see how you are experiencing FOTSUN so remember to tag #fotsun and the Port News in all your Instagram and social media posts this weekend.

Festival goer, Luke Kennington said FOTSUN is a chance for him and his mates to come back to the place they grew up.

“My friends and I have been coming to FOTSUN for a number of years.

“We all used to live in Port Macquarie growing up and coming back for the festival each year is a great and easy way for us all to stay in touch and have an awesome time.

“FOTSUN always has a great line up of artists and it does make all the difference when the artists are great the crowds are great,” Mr Kennington said.
